Sunday dinner in Milan

Will be arriving on a Sunday and leaving the following day for Venice. Any recommendations for a reasonable italian dinner close to Central Station (staying at the Milan Hilton)? 25 euros or less ideally. Appreciate any recs. Thanks!

Traveling solo to London (22 hour layover)

Sight seeing is part of the trip but food is as interesting if not more interesting :) I do plan to visit Harrods for the experience, if anything - just to browse.

Appreciate all your suggestions! Thanks again

Thanks for the suggestions. The farmer's market sounds good - just what I was thinking. Hope I make it in time before it closes.

Any suggestions for dinner? Or should I stuff myself at the Farmer's market? :)

Traveling solo to London (22 hour layover)

I will be in London for the first time on a 20 hour layover. Will be staying at the Marriott London Grosvenor Square. Arriving little past noon on Sunday (May 30) and leaving 10 am the next day.

Open to farmer's markets, pub food, etc and I prefer casual eating places over formal dining. Looking forward to this trip and to all your suggestions. Thanks!

Carlsbad Query

I like West Steakhouse and its sister Bistro West right off Cannon Road (west of I-5). Tuna tartare at the bistro is excellent! On the appetizer list, but could eat 2 or 3 of them for dinner.

Where to hold a business dinner for 35 people in San Diego

Mister A's does have a private room to the side. 35 might be a tight fit though.

Visiting Cerritos next week, need recommendations

Appreciate the input guys. I did realize that Cerritos isn't necessarily high-end but was hoping there might be a good place 20-30 mins away.

Any rec dishes for El Recoto?

Visiting Cerritos next week, need recommendations

Visiting my brother next week and looking for good places to eat. Open to any cuisine, budget, open to price range from $5 - $100 pp, just want good food. Doesn't have to be high-end... hole-in-the-walls equally appreciated. Just want to have and to experience good food. Prefer within 30 mins drive of Cerritos. 2 lunch dates and 2 dinners to fill. Thanks guys.

Bistro West in Carlsbad - Skip it

I've eaten at both Bistro West (3x) and West Steakhouse (twice) and I've had great meals on all those occasions. Ate at the dining rooms of both restaurants. Lunch three times at Bistro West and dinner at the Steakhouse.

Try the tuna tartare at Bistro West - it's an appetizer but could stand alone as an entree. Steaks were not exceptional but pretty darn good. Definitely notches above Claim Jumper.and Denny's.
